Title: Chapter 253 Mating Each Other
LV4 (9-move Mate)
Naruzou: The Kyou-fu (Kyoufu/fear) will be a problem-naru!
Your hint is to sacrifice the hisha and go crazy with the kyou-naru!'
The answer is on page 186-naru!
Right: Held pieces
Bottom: Mating Shogi Rules
■The attacking side must continuously put the opponent's ou in check-naru!
■The defending side must choose the optimal means of escape-naru!
Narr: Xiangqi Junior's
gives the appearance
of defense, but is actually meant
Narr: to cut the opponent in two!!!!
But the one that saw through his facade
was Urano Masahiko 7-dan.
Urano: A sloppy defense will only get you cut down.
But I am also
gripping a katana!!!!!
Narr: "Mating shogi" master,
Urano Masahiko is a man which...
Narr: creates "mating shogi puzzles"
like a poet writes poetry.
He also has a special technique
It's a rare ability even among pro players...
by grabbing just
a random bunch of pieces
and no more than that,
to on the spot
Narr: create a "mating shogi puzzle".
Ura: So, can you solve it?
Narr: Much like Masaoka Shiki's famous haiku:
'A mating shogi
when solved, the puzzle solver
feels a pleasant breeze'
Urano Masahiko's mating puzzles
are in the realm of being works of art.
Ura: Here, starting with '2-9 Kaku'...
there's a 19-move mate.
Someone: Urano-sensei! The time!
He's past the 10 seconds he promised.
Ukaku: Look at the timer!
Guy: Why won't she move?!!
And now I can ride this wave
all the way to killing Tanio.
Guy: There's seriously
Are you just gonna let yourself lose on time, SenseI?!!
Urano: Got it!!!
Who the hell're you?!
Urano: 3-7 Kei!
Urano: And with that move,
Ura: While defending against your 19-move mate,
Ura: in a 17-move mate.
Urano: We'll get mate.
Keep your hand steady.
3-3 Kei Promote
Same Kaku Promote
4-5 Kei Drop
Urano: And the finale,
Urano: 4-2 Kin!!!
A forced mate?!!!
Suga: She... won.
Ukaku: What... was that...?
Ukaku: In an instantaneous counterattack
she got a forced mate.
the mating shogi master all right...
Guy: You three musketeers really are the best there is!!!
